Edwards Former Campaign Manager Endorses Obama

Is John Edwards Next?
If so it better be next week.
"...a key adviser to former Democratic presidential candidate John Edwards threw his support behind Obama on Wednesday.

Ed Turlington, a Raleigh lawyer and Edwards' former campaign manager, was among 49 Edwards supporters to endorse Obama.

"Barack Obama and John Edwards share a commitment to taking on special interests and standing up for regular Americans. Along with Edwards supporters from across the state, I am honored to join Sen. Obama's movement for change,” Turlington said in a statement. “As president, he will bring together Democrats, Republicans and independents behind an agenda of change."

Other Edwards supporters endorsing Obama include former state House Majority Leader Phil Baddour, state Secretary of Cultural Resources Lisbeth Evans, former state Supreme Court justices Henry Frye and Willis Whichard, former Charlotte mayor and U.S. Senate candidate Harvey Gantt and University of North Carolina-Chapel Hill board chairman Roger Perry."
